Between 25 and 35 children attend the classes' at the San Anselmo Woman's Im- provement club house. Mrs. Capcl's, charges arc, Irom left to right, Bird Lewis, Bruce Duncan, and Leigh Ann Gilci, The Drake gunip, one oi lour such groups in Marjn, aims to piovitJe instruction lor patent 1 , a? well as to help children develop socially, Parents of one pre-scliool child often feel It is difficult to find a home in Mnrin county. But their problems are .dwarftecl by those of the Drake Parent-Child Study group, whose members are seeking permanent quarters for the 85 to 35 children in their morning workshop. Spurred by the uncertainty of how long they may continue to rent space in the San Anselmo Women's Improvement club building, which Is for 'sale, mothers and- fathers held A special meeting last week to plan steps to secure a permanent location In t'.ie Kentfleld to Fairfax area, ·The group agreed that a long- term lease is the best solution for the present, a c c o r d i n g . t o Mrs. Georga Duncan of Kentfleld, -president of the mothers' club. "Our fathers represent a variety ef skills and professions, and are community-minded In their thinking 1 . They advised us to try to gain ·physical security through a long lease, rather than to attempt to finance a building of our own right now," she said. yMrs. Duncan emphasized that the group 1» seeking information about] available buildings ,and Is willing to remodel to suit its needs. The Drake unit la one oi' four parent-child study groups in Marln, ·ponaored by the Tamalpais Union High school district. It d r a w s mostly from San Anselmo and Fairfax. Members are required to attend one evening a week, where they learn theories and procedures valuable In rearing pre-school children, Mrs. Mary Hlatt is 'director oZ the four units, and Mrs. Phyllis Reid is professional supervisor of the Drake , group. Vital to the currlculm is th'e 9-12 workshop, which ia held five days a week, Under the guidance of Mrs, Reid, mothers supervise the children In a program of creative activities end free play. Each parent participates as a mother - teacher one scheduled morning a week. Mrs. Duncan explained that mem- bets are happy with their current location in the Women's club, where there Is suitable Indoor space for music, case! painting, fylock play, clay modelling and other activities. The adjoining; lot was made available for the school's outdoor equip merit l)y its owner, but It aU'o is for sale. Known also as thu Drake Community Nursery school, the group was housed In Star Hall, San Anselmo, during the first half o£ the year and moved to the Women's club during Christmas vacation. During the two preceding years, members were allowed.space. In the former Drake elementary..'school, now the administration building for the high school district. When told that the school district would need the entire b u i l d i n g again, the executive board, began an exhaustive search which .lasted all summer and has never stopped. With the help of Mrs, Donald Stofle of Fairfax, Mrs. jesse Stewart of San Anselmo and others, Mrs. Duncan investigated 34 different sites, The above mothers are successors to. the Fairfax Cooperative nursery school, which was founded with the same purposes of providing parent education through a nursery school, whore children would have ah early opportunity to learn social adjustments among those their own age. The Fairfax school voted to enter the atudy program in the summer of 1049. During more than two years an a private school, It had an uphill struggle with housing and-made four major moves, At ono time 100 folding chairs were set up for meetings which followed study sessions, in', addition to piling all equipment into one cornel 1 , rather than discontinue the ichool. Mrs, HlaW e x p l a i n e d t h a t 'throughout California, p a r e n t s ' groups similar to the Drake unit have weathered seemingly insurmountable o b s t a c l e s , auch as housing." 'In most instances, because of the groupa'UUcar understanding of their goals and their ability to interpret their-needs of program to a community," she said, "they have been able to gain support and strengthen the whole program of parent iduca- tlon in the state." T. Fred' Bagshaw told Mill Valley Rotary Club the story of "California under 13 flags/' at the dub's.meet- ing; Tuesday In the golf clubhouse.
